Front Mounted Magnets

Front mounted magnets are mounted in a similar way as a snow plow, they allow you to pick up debris before you drive over it, but they also tend to be more expensive because of the unique connection mounting assemblies required.

Top Questions to Ask Before Buying a Commercial Truck Magnet​ic Sweeper

1. How much suspension does your truck have?

Trucks obviously have suspension and they absorb bumps but when they do, the height of the truck from the ground changes, and therefore any hanging magnet can hit the ground. And the rougher the ground, the more likely this is.  So what’s going to prevent the magnet from hitting the ground if your truck suspension compresses 4 inches, or if it does what will protect the magnet?  It’s something to consider when selecting a hanging magnet.

2. What is the danger posed by the debris problem?

If you have an extensive debris problem that will almost certainly cause a flat tire if you run over the debris, then a front mount magnetic sweeper or hanging front mount is a necessity and may be the only consideration in your choice of magnet. A front mounted magnetic sweeper will pick up debris like nails before you run over it, something that seems obviously and practically much better than running over the debris before picking it up.

3. How much do you want to spend on a truck magnet?

Hanging magnets are the most cost effective because a hanging magnet is essentially just a big magnet bar without most of the other mechanism’s that accompany a tow behind magnet or Front Mount magnet.

4. How easy is it to mount and secure the magnet?

A Commercial Truck must be used for other tasks. Therefore it’s important that the magnet can be mounted and dismounted from the Commercial Truck quickly and easily, or alternatively, the magnet can be locked into a position where it will not interfere with normal operation of the truck when not being used for sweeping.  If not, then the tow behind solution may be best for you because it can be easily and quickly hitched up when needed. 

5. How easy is the truck magnet to clean off?

A magnet may work very well at picking up debris, but how easy is it to clean off? Think through how you would clean the magnet off step by step.  Make sure it makes sense to you and your situation.  We try and do this for you so that clean off isn’t a difficult or time-consuming task, but some manufacturers don’t.  Pay attention to the details of how this will work from start to finish, right up to the point of getting the debris in the garbage or scrap bin.

6. How good is the truck magnet at hanging on to the debris that it picks up?

You are not going to be cleaning your magnet off constantly, so it’s important that when your magnet does pick up a nail or screw that the magnet secures the debris so that it won’t fall off if the magnet is suddenly shaken because of a bump or if the bottom of the magnet hits the ground and the debris is wiped backward on the magnet. The last thing you want is for the debris to fall off again.  Make sure your magnet has some feature like our “Wrap Around Feature”, it not only makes sure debris doesn’t get wiped off the bottom of the magnet, it makes the debris holding capacity higher and you’ll find in practice that most of your debris ends up on the side of your magnet not the bottom of it.  And that’s a good indication to you why we have this feature.

7. How far off the ground will the truck magnet be positioned?

We want to make sure our products meet your expectations. Therefore, make sure you look at our “maximum lifting height” specifications for each magnet option.  We bench test every one of our magnetic sweeper models to determine their maximum lifting height of a two-and-a-half-inch standard nail.  Everyone knows what a two-and-a-half-inch nail looks like which is why we use this standard measure of magnet strength and it will give you a very good idea of magnet performance.  Many times, we have videos of our products picking up various other materials so take a look at the videos in the video galleries.  They give you a chance to “kick the tires” and see how the products perform.  Many of these videos have been submitted by previous customers.

8. What terrain and in what conditions will you be working in?

The rougher, dirtier terrain your Commercial Truck operates in the stronger the magnet your likely going to want, because the magnet will have to be set higher to avoid constantly hitting the ground. The magnet will also need to pick up debris through some dirt therefore you need a stronger magnet.  The rougher the terrain that exists because of things like bumps and pot holes, more you will want or favor a magnet that has some protection built in to the design to either deal with the abuse of hitting the ground or being able to move out of the way when it does hit the ground to prevent damage.

Quick Tip #1

What do the staff of Bluestreak have to say on the subject of commercial truck magnets?

When you get into heavy trucks and commercial trucks you’re dealing with work environments and it becomes necessary to have a complete solution, not a work around with some problems. The ISO gives you the economy of a hanging magnet, together with some well thought out features such as ground strike protection, quick clean off capabilities, extra hanging and sway prevention points, and easy raising and lowering for quick deployment and securing when needed that allows you to leave it permanently connected. All the features add up to a nice compact solution that works in many commercial situations without a lot of hassle associated with using the magnet.

Easily attach to your commercial truck in a variety of positions.

The Wrasse magnetic bar is the most economical hanging design option because you’re paying for just a big magnet bar.  Hang it underneath with the two included mounting chains and you’re off and ready to go!  The Wrasse comes in three different magnet strengths and different widths to suit your budget and needs.  But if your vehicle bounces around a lot such that the magnet could hit the ground a lot as well, this may not be the best option. It’s the most economical but you have to be careful to ensure the magnet won’t hit the ground.  This usually causes people to mount them too high to be really effective.  It can however, be a competent solution in flat even surface conditions.
